Art in the Open - Inspiring Creative Approaches for Town Centres

Benefits, Advocacy and Commissioning Guidance

Art in the Open was launched in May 2007 as London’s advocacy and advisory body for art in the public realm. As part of Open House, it champions the contribution that artists, working with others, can make to an experience of place for Londoners and the city’s visitors.

Art in the Open fosters better quality opportunities for London’s art in the public realm; bringing together those involved in the commissioning process including artists and architects; local authorities and regeneration agencies; developers; statutory bodies and other public sector commissioners.

Art in the Open works strategically influencing London-wide issues, advising on places of development and providing guidance to commissioners. During 2008-10 its own advocacy projects are focused on the themes of lighting and commemoration. A dedicated Art in the Open website with advice and guidance for London will launch in April 2009.
